Meanwhile, shop workers are being asked to check for counterfeit cash but could you tell the difference? Police have issued these helpful tips on what to look for.
Watermark genuine watermarks should be hardly apparent until the note is held up to the light when the clear portrait with subtle light and shade becomes visible.
Security thread genuine notes have a metallic thread embedded in the paper and when the note is held up to the light the thread appears as a bold continuous line.
Printing raised print is used in some of the features on genuine banknotes and should feel slightly rough to the touch. Lines and print should be sharp and well defined with no blurred edges. Colours should be clear and distinct not hazy. The wording on genuine RBS banknotes is in raised print.
Move/Tilt if a genuine note bears a hologram the colours/images will change depending on the angle the note is held.
Detector Pen when applied; detector pens leave a dark line on most counterfeit notes;
if the note is genuine the pen leaves no mark. You can mark a suspect banknote diagonally from corner to corner
UV Light genuine banknotes are dull under a UV light with only the special UV features present in the note highlighted yellow
Magnifying Glass Genuine notes contain some microprint that is only visible using a magnifying glass. On a genuine note the print should be sharp and well defined with no blurred edges. On RBS banknotes microprint features within the block of colour at the bottom of the front of the note and should read ‘RBSRBSRBSRBS’ and the line above this block of colour should read ‘The Royal Bank of Scotland’.
